USA: Florida prepares for second-strongest Atlantic hurricane ever - Dorian

United States, Melbourne Beach
September 03, 2019 at 03:13 GMT +00:00 · Published

Melbourne was among dozens of Florida coastal towns to be under mandatory evacuation on Monday as the "monster storm" Hurricane Dorian approached the US coast.

Dorian was downgraded to a category four storm on Monday afternoon after lasting as a category five hurricane for over 24 hours and clocking winds of 185 mph (298 kmph) while battering the Bahamas. That decreased to 150 mph (241 kmph) during the hurricane's slow crawl following landfall on Grand Bahama Island.

Dorian exceeded previous estimations by becoming a category five storm, and is carrying the strongest winds in recorded history in the north-western Bahamas, according to NASA.

It has been reported as the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane record.
